Creative Writing - Greek Gods to Modern Superheroes

Greek gods and heroes are the subjects of some of the great myths in history. Their exploits and adventures have been shared for centuries through stories, written poetry and prose, and even stage and film productions. The classic tales of good versus evil are timeless, as is the public’s thirst for exciting narratives about heroes and their triumphs. The Titans (the most well-known of the Greek gods and goddesses) laid the foundation for the modern superheroes we enjoy today. We will compare the themes and messages of Greek myths with those of modern superheroes, write descriptions of new characters to add to the Greek “pantheon”, consider the take-away lessons from these stories, create comic books, screenplays, and more!
